    If a seller is asking the buyer to pay the seller's fees - it's against PayPal's Policies - this is called a surcharge and it's clearly pointed out in the PayPal User Agreement. Below is a snippet from the documentation, look for - Accepting Payments From Buyers for Goods and Services

    -----

    No surcharges



    You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services as long as the "handling" fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions. ("Handling fees" -are common in the ticket sales world.)
    ------

    Paying for an art commission via the friends/family payment method gives the buyer no way to get a refund if the commission isn't completed, so I highly recommend paying via goods/services.

    This isn't meant to downplay your commissions in any way. This is meant to be an informative response to anyone looking to buy.

    I wasn't aware of this. I was always told that doing it the goods/services was taking the risk that the commissioner could scam you by asking paypal for a refund. Is this not true anymore? What do you recommend? i've always done it this way, but i'd never want any commissioner to be worried about no getting a refund if the commission isn't completed.

    I actually had a good friend of mine explain how to do invoices and such, so once i'm home and not on my phone i plan to edit both my posts on dA and here. Thank you for telling me!! I really appreciate it! :love:

    No problem! Use Invoices.

    This ensures that your client will not send you 'gift' payment (which too much of can get you flagged), makes it clear what the total amount is, keeps it in your currency, and you can use the notes section to clearly write down what the commission is and who it is of for future reference. It even has a place for you to link your TOS. Plus, added bonus of very clear records of what has been paid in full or not and what it was for if you forget if you use the notes properly.

    While it's true you don't have 'protection' for being a commissioned goods seller, digital or not, you can still plead your case if there's a dispute, and an invoice with clear information as to what the item being purchased is and what it is of, can help in making your case should that ever happen. It's not a guarantee but it puts you in a much better place.
